The clinic was founded in 1998 by me in Bad Soden am Taunus and is run since October 1, 2017 as a private practice. The focus is on lung and bronchial medicine. After almost 20 years in the medical profession, I have given the approval to a competent colleague elsewhere in the Main-Taunus district, who has taken on the further care of the legally insured.
Another location for the private practice is now set up in Bad Homburg, where currently a weekly private consultation takes place. Main location will continue to be Bad Soden.
The previous philosophy of holistic and partnership medicine will also guide future private practice. However, there will be more time for the individual patient and thus the chance to tackle even more complex problems. The integration of naturopathic and conventional medical procedures was always an important concern for me. The private practice now offers the possibility to implement the whole range of possibilities. The natural healing methods and the instructions for independent health management should therefore be given a large space in the future.
Sleep disorders are very common today and affect nerves, respiration, circulation and the immune system. With our outpatient sleep laboratory we want to help restore healthy sleep and offer solutions for complex disorders.
In my medical work, I have always striven to achieve optimal treatment results, sometimes using unusual methods and always in cooperation with family physicians and a network of experts. This will continue to be the principle of my work.
On the other hand, despite the array of therapeutic options, there are always limits to improving health. Be it the advanced destruction of lung tissue such as pulmonary emphysema or a permanent disability that has existed for a long time. Not to complain but to accept something immutable often releases unimagined powers for the remaining health. However, as has been repeatedly shown in patient counseling over the years, many sufferers are unaware of what is actually immutable and what is changeable.
To understand diagnoses I see not only as a basis for therapeutic procedures, but also as an opportunity for the patient to gain insights about their own possibilities and limitations. A special concern for us is therefore an information-oriented education. It can lead to a learning process that opens up new perspectives, which in turn gives hope.
To promote health-conscious behavior and identify personal health risks, we offer a thorough health check as prevention.
Two mothers with preschool children in the team have made the practice into a workplace that allows a good integration of work and family.
Over the years, numerous medical assistants have successfully completed their vocational training in practice. For the intensive involvement in the training, the practice was issued by the Landesärztekammer Hessen a certificate of honor. Training will continue to be an integral part of the practice concept in the future, providing future medical assistants with the know-how of an internistic-pneumological practice.

Dr. med. Volker Brauner
After completing studies in human medicine in Berlin and in Freiburg i.Br. in 1985, Dr. med. Brauner further training in Switzerland, i.a. completed in the high mountain clinic Davos-Wolfgang, the cantonal hospital Basel and the pulmonary specialist clinic Barmelweid. He spent a year as a postdoc in preclinical research in the field of cardiovascular and pneumological pharmacology at Sandoz AG in Basel. He obtained his medical doctorate from the University Children's Hospital Freiburg i.Br. on the subject of hemolytic uremic syndrome. Before and during the study education and activity in nursing.
Prior to his establishment in private practice in 1998 he was chief physician of a pneumological rehabilitation clinic in Bad Soden am Taunus. In addition to the clinic management, he held the deputy head of the first sleep laboratory in the Rhine-Main area, from which developed the sleep medical focus of today's practice. The acquisition of a second specialist name as a physician for physical and rehabilitative medicine resulted from many years of experience in rehabilitation medicine. As additional designations Dr. med. Brauner's allergy and environmental medicine.
He had already studied acupuncture and natural healing as a student in courses of the German Medical Society for Acupuncture and the Naturopathic Societies in Freudenstadt and Baden-Baden. After the specialist training, he has taken up this thread again and educated regularly in these areas.
In the course of this Dr. Brauner has completed a training as a Taiji and Qigong teacher according to the Yang-style tradition over the years, including training in classical Chinese medicine. Part of this is the B-diploma of the German Medical Association for Acupuncture and the Stems and Branches Acupuncture by Joan Duveen.
In 2009, together with his Taiji teacher, Master Frieder Anders, he published the book "Taiji, Atmenergetics and Biomechanics". Articles on the naturopathic therapy of allergies Sleep disorders and bronchial diseases have appeared in the journal "Der Naturarzt".
Qualification is a permanent learning process! The learning of personal teachers is, in addition to the theoretical education as important for their own development as a healing man. The naming of the names of important personal teachers also from the non-medical field should therefore be a reference for the personal training path.
